Hate to break it to you, but that stuff already existsTheMann said:Sorry about your head. Pool tables aren't very forgiving.
First off, It's comforting to know that I'm not the only person who uses the word "pussification". Secondly, I absolutely agree, differences in gender do go far beyond anatomy and genetic construct. Men and women tend to behave and respond to different situations differently from one another. This isn't just because of genetics; gender roles in one form or another have been around for literally tens of thousands of years. You can't just undo stuff that's essentially been hardwired into us since the origins of civilization. Also, is it just me, or does this seem like a huge suppression of individuality. Boys can't be boys, girls can't be girls, we all have to (ominously) be... "friends". *shudder*
But hey, maybe they're just not trying hard enough. Why stop at stories and linguistic syntax? How about making it so the girls aren't allowed to wear dresses and have to wear their hair up to decrease their feminine appearance, and the boys can't wear jeans or clothing with sports logos, soldiers or anything else remotely thought of as masculine. Everyone will then be issued plain unisex clothing and be carefully watched over until finally, blissful equality will be achieved. Wait a minute! I've seen this before. In a game! Hmm, where is it? Oh, yeah:
Welcome to the future, "friends".
